Research results using the James Webb Space Telescope will be the topic of a talk by Dr. J. McKim Malville for the Central Colorado Humanists Sunday Science program on Oct. 9.
After a flawless launch and deployment, the telescope resides a million miles from the earth, where it will explore the extremes of time in our universe from its very beginnings and search for the presence of life beyond earth.
Dr. Malville brings a wealth of experience to a breadth of topics in the science of astronomy. His research interests have drawn him to ancient astronomies, solar physics, interstellar medium, and the aurora. Past Chair of the University of Colorado Department of Astro-Geophysics, he is presently Professor Emeritus of the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences of that institution and visiting professor at the University of Wales, UK.
Central Colorado Humanists sponsor Sunday Science presentations each month. Each presentation is informative and features a science topic understandable by both scientists and non-scientists. The doors of the Salida Scout Hut, 210 E. Sackett St. Salida, CO, will open at 9:30 a.m. and the talk will start promptly at 10:00 a. m. A discussion and light refreshments will follow the talk. Admission is free and the public is welcome. Please join us! Masks are welcome but not required.
Editor’s note: the Central Colorado Humanists have reinstated COVID-19 standards, including face masks, due to the high spread of COVID-19 in Chaffee County at this point in time.
